Cisco and Hortonworks established their official alliance back in 2013. Together, they have been bringing to life the vision of a single big data platform for the enterprise. As every industry is witnessing unprecedented quantities of data and a variety of new data types e.g. clickstream and behavior, machine and sensor, geographic data, server logs, sentiment and web…, Cisco and Hortonworks have been collaborating to empower companies with their data. Oftentimes, organizations need to optimize their IT infrastructure and free up their Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) to make the most of all of their data, building new analytic applications and moving towards the vision of the Data Lake.

An increasing number of enterprises are either currently using or are planning to use cloud deployment models to expand their IT infrastructure for big data. We find that organizations are looking for an open and flexible platform that enables them to deploy big data and Hadoop solutions on-premises, in the cloud and in a hybrid environment.

Microsoft and Hortonworks have joined forces to help simplify and ease the transformation of your current Apache Hadoop deployment to hybrid cloud architecture.…

This is a unique moment in time. Fueled by open source, Apache Hadoop has become an essential part of the modern enterprise data architecture and the Hadoop market is accelerating at an amazing rate.

The impressive thing about successful open source projects is the pace of the “release early, release often” development cycle, also known as upstream innovation. The process moves through major and minor releases at a regular clip and the downstream users get to pick the releases and versions they want to consume for their specific needs.…
